Words from the VCC President

June 9, 2015

I hope everyone is enjoying the great weather. Precious (my pet dog) and I have been on a couple of ‘cow’ drives and enjoyed having the top down.

Just want to mention a few upcoming items that we hope you can join us for.

June 13th is next VCC meeting  – at Charley Droogs. We have the Mystery cruise on June 20th that Agnes and I have planned. Everyone had a great time last year and we will definitely have at least one photo opportunity and a great place to have lunch.

Don’t forget that June 26th is ‘Drive your Corvette to Work’ day. For those of us that are lucky enough to be retired, we still can participate. We will be meeting at noon at the River Ridge Mall in front of the Food Court like we did last year. At the end where there are few cars around. We should be able to take pictures for the web page.

I also want to mention that the July meeting is on a Friday evening at Paul & Betty Jo Lilly’s house in Bedford. Because a number of you have to drive, we will do social at 6:30 and meeting and food at about 7 PM. Paul is furnishing water and soda and the club will be buying hamburgers and fixing for the grill. You are on your own for beer (just be responsible, please).

Save the wave.

 Pat Mullett – VCC President
